It's probably wearing between the outer race of the bearing and the corresponding surface of the hub.

It's probably the plastic hub that has gotten some play in it. Try replacing that. It is a high-wear part anyways, so don't be suprised. That's why a lot of guys replace them with aluminum units.

Wheel wobble isn't a bad thing. I keep my car as loose as possible. Worst case scenario is that it might be the rear uprights. Just replace them with the stock plastic ones to keep weight down.

And again most motors supply more than enough power.

The only viable option you said would be the rear alminum up rights and center diff mount. The rest is crap for poeple like you that think that you need it to go fast but it doesn't make you any faster.

Whats the price difference between the Mugen and the Jammin that makes a bit of a difference and what does it matter if the Jammin handles better.
The Jammin car is one of the heaviest buggies that competes on the national scene. That is the need for the light stuff on it. I dremeled off unnecessary plastic and put every lightweight item on my car. I NEVER put the aluminum items on my car other than the alum center diff mount. It all adds up and helps.

This car hands down is one of the best and most consistant from track to track on the market,for the beginner and the pro.

I weighed my x1-cr buggy and a Losi 8ight yesterday. I have lipo and the Losi did not(3/4oz difference). Mine came in at 1 ounce lighter after an extensive diet this winter. siiick

depends on the track, in the central states, the common set up is 5-7-3 with Losi F40-Losi R30/32.5 shock oil and big holes in the pistons.

Brilliant,

I assume those shock oil ratings are for the 16mm bb's

the track is dirt with a few jumps nothing big though

Ill play around with the diffs and see what i find ive also been advised to put the rear links on the lowest setting on the tower. Ill give that a go - just will be a pain to then have to reset all the settings for camber
